Hey Everyone,

I want to let you know that when you walk into a fearful situation, you are not walking as one, but as much more. You are walking in with all the experiences you’ve ever experienced, all the people you’ve ever met, all the hard work and effort you’ve ever put into something. You are walking in as that and so much more.

Life is going to give you opportunities that are going to require you to step out of that comfort zone as it has for me. At times these decisions are so hard and at times sometimes I ask myself why, why do I do this to myself? But I realise that at the end of the day, it’s about how much you want to grow, how much you want to turn the chapter to see what’s next. At times the unknown is going to be freakin scary, or something crazy. I’ve been called crazy all the time and times I call myself crazy but you know what? If I don’t do it, then I’ll be at square one to the day I die and that is something even scarier than the unknown. Well, for me at least.

I’ve never been a huge fan of powder foundations – they end up being cakey and dry and most of all, they don’t provide as much coverage as liquid foundations but I might start changing my mind. The new SILKYGIRL Magic BB All – in – One Powder Foundation is something I’ve been trying out and I’ve recently discovered thanks to SILKYGIRL. Today I’ll tell you my thoughts about it and plus I’ll show you a lip favourite I’ve been loving which is the new SILKYGIRL Matte Fever Lipcolor Balms! I’ll also be giving you a few powder foundation tips at the end too so let’s get started!

Aren’t you glad the holidays are nearly here! I’m so excited. Of course along with the holidays comes the season of gift giving and I was happy to attend the Sephora Holiday 2015 Christmas Dinner earlier this week. During the dinner, we got a sneak peek into what sets and beauty gifts we can get for our loved ones this Christmas so let’s take a closer look at my favourite ones!

To be honest, I thought Sephora had the best and most interesting gifts this year. I feel like Sephora brand products are actually a bit underrated – they’re always super on trend and their products are not bad at all. Some key things to look forward to is the Sephora Advent Calendar (SGD$69) filled with bath and accessory suprises including little gifts from fizzing cubes to eyeshadows and lip pencils. It makes a great early Christmas gift so you can start counting down on December 1st. I also thought the Color Wonderland Sephora palette (SGD$85) featured below on the right is very impressive. There are so many shades of eyeshadow and even highlighter that you can use and it’s similar to opening a wonderous book of color. I really like it. I noticed a lot of mini book palettes as well. It is certainly an extensive collection you should check out.

When we live in a city like Singapore, it means our skin is constantly exposed to city triggers like dirt, pollution, climate/humidity, stressful lifestyles and a processed diet. That’s why we have what I call “city skin”. These triggers result in skin sensitivity over time and cause symptoms like redness, tightness and even breakouts. Sensitive skin varies from person to person – I have slightly sensitive skin while others suffer from extremely sensitive skin. All skin types are prone to it – no matter if you’re oily, dry or combination.

Here are the triggers for my sensitive city skin:

I’ve met a lot of products that claim to give you instant volume, but I’ve never found one that really does. My hair gets super oily and limp in the evenings and late afternoons, especially when I’m tired. I’d say that sometimes it even has a life of its own. Today I want to share with you the Dove Volume & Nourishment Root Lift Spray - it is THE best volumiser to date and you can even bring it on the go.  Dove kindly sent this to me for review purposes and I was happy to try it out. I’m certainly glad I did. Just look at the above before and after picture! Seriously, all I used was the spray and it really did give me INSTANT volume. So much love for this stuff. Let’s take a closer look.

Hey Everyone,

1.1

I feel like it’s been a while since I connected with you on a more personal level, sharing my feelings and thoughts. Today, I thought I’d just spill my thoughts everywhere, see where this goes and give you basically a general update of how I feel about life right now. Ever since I launched Bloom’s new location and Revolution in August, it’s been well let’s say a whole nother journey for me. It really feels like I’ve opened up a new chapter of my life and I’ve just started.

I think there are good sides and bad sides to every job. A lot of people tell me that I’m living my dream and that I am what every person wants to become. I feel like that’s a lot of pressure to take. I think that the grass is always greener on the other side. Yes, I am doing what I want to do but although I try to keep a strong front, there are times when you’re wondering what on earth are you doing. It feels like you’ve taken off and have started flying but there are times when you stop and look down and kinda shock yourself at how high you’ve flown. Sometimes I ask myself why I’ve done this to myself – after all, getting a 9 to 5 job is so much easier. I would finally have weekends, a steady salary, can finally plan financially and the movement of my company wouldn’t depend soley on well…me. It feels like there are eyes everywhere, eyes that yes want you to succeed and other eyes that can’t wait for you to fail – the constant pressure of having to look and be successful. It’s Painful. But in all this, I’ve really begun to discover a few things that I keep telling myself over and over again and I really hope it helps you too.
